1963 Plymouth Belvedere

This winter's project is to build a 426 Max block up for the Belve'. She will be getting 12:1 Jahns pistons, a 509 cam, 850 Holley, headers, 3 inch exhaust system, electronic ignition, and 3:91 Sure Grip rear.

I'll keep ya posted when it's all together and trollin the streets. lol

Update November 2003

My project finally nears an end with my '63 Belvedere, from a 318 Poly to the 413 big block.

I ended up using a 509 cam,
Edelbrock Torker intake,
redone AFB,
Mopar Hi-Performance
Electronic Ignition,
Accel Coil,
Pi-Vol Oil Pump, &
windage tray.

Also included in the 318 to 413 changeover were: custom Bob Cole TorqueFlite (pushbutton) with ProTorgue 3000 convertor, 3.55 SureGrip, newer styl rear endnd (no tapered axles), superstock springs, front disc brakes utilizing a manual master cylinder and a custom 2 1/2 inch exhaust, with crossover.

The old girl moves on out pretty well! It's not a 4 cyl, 30 mpg ride, but it sure is fun, and gets to triple digits fast!

but worth every cent in enjoyment!

Great looking Plymouth Jere!

Looks like you will have a fun winter project as well!

After that, an even better new year awaits you and your Mopar. :-)

Re the project update: Hum... "not a 4 cyl, 30 mpg ride...sure is fun...orth every cent in enjoyment" sums it up nicely!

Good job!
